Topics & Speakers
 

(1) Bacteroides – A Better Method for Determining Sewage Contamination - Diane Miskowski, EMSL Analytical

Coliform and E. coli testing have been used for over 50 years.  As our knowledge of  these  bacteria  has  increased  along  with  the  advent  of  molecular  testing techniques such as PCR, we now know that looking for the traditional indicator bacteria  using culture methods is  problematic.   This  is  particularly  true when using these organisms to determine the presence of sewage contamination in soil or indoor environments.  EPA has been evaluating alternative organisms to replace these sewage indicator bacteria.  This discussion presents an overview of  the  advantages  and  disadvantages  of  using  the  traditional  indicator  tests, EPA’s   research  into  alternative  indicator  organisms,  as  well  as  case  study evidence  to  suggest  that  Bacteroides may  be  a  better  indicator  for  sewage contamination.

(2) Antimicrobial Applications:  How Disinfectants, Sanitizers, Biocides Influence and Explore Restoration Concepts and Techniques - Cole Stanton, Fiberlock Technologies

“Biocides” and other chemical tools are popular piñatas in multiple disciplines of indoor air quality.  But while everyone has a swing on whether we can have better living through chemistry, there are illustrative examples of how these products help IAQ Pros have a more enriched understanding of mold remediation, fire/smoke/water damage restoration, and biohazard/trauma scene cleanup.
